Re: Need for a technique
Hi Paul, Use: ancestor::*[starts-with(name(),'h')] Cheers, Dimitre Novatchev.

For example : <doc> <h1> <para>my text is here, and <x/> I need to know where x is...</para> <h2> <para>However :<list> <item><x/> this element could be anywhere</item> </list> </para> </h2> </h1> </doc> In this example, I am looking for the nearest enclosing <hx> element (h1 or h2). I need an Xpath expression that would give back h1 for the first <x/> element, and h2 for the second. Any idea ? Thanks. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
